The Undertaker is a household name in the world of professional wrestling, as he is considered living legend to many. He gave 30 years of his life to the business and achieved a level of success not many can dream of. He also opened up about how fans reacted to him throughout his career.

The Deadman has been very protective of his character since day one, as he almost never broke character. He remained one of the most intimidating pro wrestlers to have ever laced up a pair of boots.

While speaking with Ryan Satin on his Out of Character podcast, The Undertaker opened up about how different fan reactions were to him, compared to other pro wrestlers.

“It was funny, like back in the day, we actually did not have security guards and we didn’t have — we used to come out of the arena and you would be on your own to make it to your car. And especially those first, I don’t know, maybe those first four years, like when everybody else came out they would just get mobbed, and when I would come out through the back door and Paul Bearer would be with me, the people would open up, they would be just like they would just move away from me, and I didn’t have to say anything, I didn’t have to yell at anybody, it was really… people did not know how to take me, and that was telling me you’re doing something right, and it just kind of became my way of life.”


The Phenom is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame this year, in what is certainly shaping up to be one of the best Hall Of Fame ceremonies in recent memory
